Transdev’s Brisbane bus fleet is greener with all 17 new electric buses on the road now in Brisbane and already chalking up more than 330,000km.
The electric buses, assembled at Eagle Farm, have been progressively replacing diesel buses since February this year in Brisbane’s eastern suburbs, supported by Translink and delivered by Volvo and Volgren.
Transdev Queensland Managing Director Mark Thatcher said Transdev was committed to a greener and more sustainable future.
We’re really proud we’ve been able to deliver locally-assembled electric buses in partnership with Translink and support our bus builders and local jobs.
These new electric buses are being put to work every day and they’re performing well mechanically and for our customers and reducing our carbon footprint and noise pollution.
It’s been a year of planning and delivering all the necessary upgrades at our Capalaba depot including charging infrastructure but also all the driver training and upskilling as well.
